In town for the annual Laneway tour, Minneapolis natives Poliça have been one of the festival’s must-sees for those in the know. Lead singer Channy Leanagh’s silky vocals hover delicately over the electronic-tinged layers the accomplished band sets. Despite only releasing debut album Give You the Ghost last year, members of the band had previously been members of super-group Gayngs.
Find out why they’ve been receiving praise from the likes of Jay-Z and Justin Vernon – the latter recently called them “the best band I’ve ever heard.” For me, they’re a much better version of Grimes, without all the hoopla.
